📖 THE STORY

An evil spirit has opened a portal into a dark dimension. We as a secret order of the guardians have to venture into the other side to close the portal or else the whole world will be in danger!

🎯 HIT THE BULLSEYE

  • This isn't the first dimensional portal experience we’ve played but definitely one that’s the most drastic in terms of the set design.

  • The portal “transportation” was my favorite part of the game design.

  • Story line tied in with the set design. The ceiling decor was amazing.

  • Love it when the puzzles are utilized in the story line. In this case, it was very clever how it was “transformed” in the other dimension

  • Great use of the fog, lighting, and sound at the right moments. We love a strong ending.  

🧩 MISSED THE MARK

  • The latter puzzles were a lot more intriguing and tied in with the story line than the beginning ones.

  • The ending part seemed to trigger before we had the last puzzle piece in. We thought we had to do a bit more according to the clue message so that was a bit confusing to us.  

🏹 TAKE A SHOT?

This room had a little mixture of a magic, mystical feel as well as a little horror. We really enjoy the concept. If you love surprises, then this room had a ton. Some parts of the room will be played in dim light so make sure you are comfortable with that. We got out with just the two of us but if you just started playing escape rooms, we would suggest an ideal group of four. Let us know your thoughts when you travel back from the dimensions!
